Calm: Poetic Winter Photo Challenge Week 4

   Well, this is the final entry for the Poetic Winter Photography Challenge. It has been fun finding shots to go with the theme each week.

   I am late getting this one in...this week has been anything but calm. I just couldn't bring myself to find the time to put a post together or to focus on a word that I just could not fit my mind into...

   These photos are being pulled from shoots where I was feeling calm. As this week comes to a close, I am hoping this weekend will slow down a bit. 

   As you visit here today, I hope these images and the songs that are playing will help make you feel a sense of calm....

 And if you are in a stormy time in your life right now, I encourage you to tuck yourself in close to your Heavenly Father and wait out the storm...The wind will die down...the sun will shine warm on your face again...you are not alone...lay your burden down and rest...


Calm


I love to watch the sky, I think it is one of the most calming things to do...



















We have not had much snow this winter, so I pulled this one out from pictures of the last big snow we had.
A thick blanket of snow quiets the earth in a very calming way...











Time spent around water is always calming... I love this picture of the pier at the lake and watching the water move...and watching how the wind fills the sails of the boats on the water is very calming

















Time spent with scripture calms and quiets the soul...



May you have many "Green Pasture" and "Still Water" moments today....

Love,
Allison

Thank you so much for stopping by! I love rainbows, and when I can capture them in a photo, I get so excited :)

These are amazing captures, Allison -- I can understand how they define "calm" for you.

My week ended with a not-so-calm event, so I am enjoying viewing your photos.

Thank you for sharing at Your Sunday Best. :)
